Zizek: A Reader's Guide

Книга доступна в форматах: fb2 , pdf , epub
Slavoj Zizek is widely regarded as the most significant and provocative thinker of our age. He integrates concepts from the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan with Hegel's dialectical method in philosophy, for a radically new vision of human nature and human society. Zizek has written - with humor, lucidity, and extraordinary erudition - on the philosophical problem of identity, ontology, globalization, postmodernism, political philosophy, literature, film, ecology, religion, the French Revolution, Lenin, the philosophy of language, and the philosophy of mind.
Zizek: A Reader's Guide situates Zizek's wide-ranging work in the broader context of continental philosophy, engages its precedents, and provides an overview of its main preoccupations, providing a backstory for both the philosopher and the general reader.
Moving deftly through the works of G.W.F.Hegel, F.W.J.Schelling, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, Louis Althusser, and Alain Badiou, in addition to Lacan, this reader's guide offers a comprehensive overview of Slavoj Zizek's thoughts.
